Our heritage is the plaything of men who know the price of everything and the value of nothing.

One thing you can do now is go to the library and look in the city directory for the year it was built and learn the name of the first occupant. Then you can learn his occupation and his spouse's name.

 

I'm not sure but directories from that long ago may be on microfiche. It would be nice if all of them could be made digital.

Today is Yule so I'm bumping this up just because.

When travelling to and from the house, the Kellys always took New York Ave, which was unpaved, and avoided paved Evans Ave, knowing that the laws watched the paved streets but ignored the unpaved ones.

 

Now, who knows Machine Gun's real name, and how did he come by his Tommy gun?

Saw him at Queen City Music Hall last night. If I had a bucket list and that were on it, I could cross it off now.

You can't keep a good thread down. Too bad there's no embedded player anymore, though. Or is that just me?

Janine Turner, of Nebraska, of the weirdly wonderful Northern Exposure from the '90's, claims Fort Worth as home. As does Alice Walton in all the billionaire lists (according to Forbes she's like the 14th richest person on the planet). I understand though that both of them actually live on ranches outside of Fort Worth. The Julie Newmar Catwoman and Spanky also called either Fort Worth (or somewhere in Tarrant County) home at the time of their trip to meet Jeebus.


Barry Corbin, also late of Northern Exposure, lives in Handley.
